MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

As tax season comes down to the wire, thousands of Americans will be happy to learn they have a little extra time to file this year. 

The typical April 15 deadline falls on a weekend, and thanks to a National Holiday the following Monday, this year's deadline falls on Tuesday, April 18. 

For those of you who have yet to file, here are a few helpful tips: 

Save yourself some money by e-filing.

The IRS says less than one percent of electronic returns have errors compared to the 20 percent error rate on paper returns. 

If you make less than $64,000 a year, you can file for free using the IRS's online software to prepare your federal tax

Plus, those who file online usually receive their money faster.
